the transportation system, military networks, and military systems. secretary panetta's remarks came yesterday in new york city. >> frank, five words. you deserve to be here. [applause] ladies and gentlemen, it is now and high honor to introduce the most talented, versatile, and experienced leaders in american government, a man who serves our country by meeting the extraordinary challenges of our times. i am sure secretary of defense, leon panetta thinks on his days in the u.s. army intelligence where he received the army accommodation metal. he chaired the house budget committee before moving on to be the director was office management budget. from there, president clinton tapped him to be white house chief of staff. as directer of central intelligence, leon pa panetta me many critical decisions, but more recently, one particularly outstanding, and a public contribution to the defense of the united states of america, and to our very own new york city. he oversaw the successful and daring mission that ended the life of one osama bin laden. [applause] thank you, mr. secretary. the persistence, courage
that naturally happens. but leon panetta said we don't want to buy the same horse twice. we don't want to see buying into the same to cost the lives of the people. >> to pay and his outspoken and very strong comments is the example to be admired. your government has spoken out forcefully of the abuses of the regime and our government could take a lesson from new. >> i work closely with your government japan also have a special envoy for north korea human-rights and reworked closely for number of years. given it is highly unlikely the regime will fall because of the external force it does not seem apparent although no one never knows, the the to that supports the regime will dump him and who knows what would emerge? the best chance for change is from within the north korea community itself. the more light that is shed the more likely is to re-emerge a significant number are getting access to information something that did not exist 10 years ago. to the extent the japanese government can facilitate more radio transmissions into north korea those that are willing to support who can really shed l
, you just don't know any facts. first of all, one little fact, i really wonder whether mr. panetta who talked about the smallest number of ships since 1915, said that in a letter to your former boss, senator mccain, would really be happy to give this argument is ridiculous. wasn't a republican who made that case. it was mr. panetta. number one. number two, the navy is going to be bigger because i funded the ships that are being built. it takes a few years to get them out to see. look at the pattern of naval spending, and the number of ships over the next few years. the air force, rich was very careful to talk about platforms, not aircraft. why? because he's talking about drones. not just planes. you want to watch this very, very carefully. i'm not saying rich wasn't giving you facts. i'm saying that it's a reflection of this administration that when it comes to worst, there's a lot of -- there's an awful lot of fancy footwork. finally, defense going up, it's not going up in real terms. it's going up in nominal terms. big difference. and i come back to the point, why has this administra
and that is the sequester. we know that mr. panetta, the secretary of defense, said that it would be a disaster, as it would be. and i would refer you to the chapter. where did that originate? where did that idea come from? it turns out that it can from the white house. it turns out he had a meeting with senator reid and congresswoman pelosi and suggested this. and initially and apparently they were not keen on the idea. now how much does the defense amount to percentage wise in terms of the problem that we as a nation face? if you talk about giving budgetary spending every year, discretionary spending, it is 50%. if you talk about the problem that includes entitlements, it is 13%. if you want to look at the $55 billion coming out of the sequestered, that works out to about 1.4% of our overall problem. but better than 10% of the defense budget. are you going to tell me that the solution to the national financial problem is cutting defense? and by the way, do you honestly think that the mothers in iran, that the north koreans, but the radical muslims including al qaeda which have been defeated but now it tur
the service. we are very closely partnering with the department of veterans affairs and rich secretary panetta, getting ready for the meetings, naturally. but the issue is that we are seeing transition as a career long activity. what that illuminates is that you can credentialed people. you can get a welding certificate that is portable across the united states if you are a welder. truck drivers, electricians, communications resource. the tougher ones are tankers and infantrymen. we are working with them to transition over time. and not just at the end of their career. >> today we have a veteran that attended georgetown and the university of oxford. costs for oxford or one 10th of georgetown. would you ask american private universities to provide best affordable education in comparison to overseas education >> well, first of all, you have to be a pretty smart son of of it, don't you? [laughter] [laughter] i think the educational benefits that have come online, well, there is a five minute warning. i didn't notice that. the educational benefits are very important. the new g.i. bill, it does pro
something about, i think. and that is the sequester. now, we know that mr. panetta, our secretary of defense, has said the sequester would be a disaster. as it would be. and i refer to him for chapter and verse about the size of the navy, the air force, the army. where did that originate? where did that idea come from? turns out it came from the white house. turns out mr. jack lew had a meeting with senator reid and congresswoman pelosi and suggested this. and initially, apparently, they weren't too keen on the idea until defense was thrown in. now, how much does defense really amount to percentage wise in terms of the problem we as a nation face? if you talk about given budgetary spending every year, discretionary spending, defense is pretty nigh on 50%. if you talk about the real problem which includes entitlements, defense is 14%. if you look at the $55-odd billion coming out of the sequester, that works out to about 1.4% of our overall problem. but better than 10% of the defense budget. now, are you going to tell me that the solution to our national financial problems is cutting defense?
